K: Mommy, can I break the eggs when we make pancakes?
Me: No! Last time you got egg everywhere.
K: I know but I want to try.
Me: I know, Sweetie, and I'm glad you to want to try things, but I don't want to clean up a big mess right now. Can you understand that?
K: Yes, Mommy. Can I break the eggs when we make pancakes?
Have I mentioned how much I love my children?
